The problem with lots of data is that for it to be useful in particular cases, humans have to focus on it, and that takes a lot of them, probably many more than available.  If it's just used to target ads, commercial or political, that's mostly software.  Identifying a couple of potential killers out of a million, then trying to watch them and stop them is more complicated.

But trying to do that, needing to do that is the only option in a nation with recklessly lax gun regulation.  At any one time there may be dozens of angry, unbalanced kids, or adults, and most all of them could easily obtain a highly effective deadly firearm  When will Congress figure out how wrong that is, and fix it.

So, do you really want to accuse liberals of lying, when conservatives are supporting a President who has set an all-time record for number of documented lies told to the American people?

Before you start accusing others of untruthfulness, you need to do some fact-checking on those of your own ideology.  You may find it embarrassing, but if you actually care about truth, that's what you should do.

"Creation astronomy" provides some good laughs, anyway.  But knowing that some take such nonsense seriously is a bit sad.

It looks like Congress may actually agree on taking away that tariff setting loophole that Trump is abusing.  Of course, even if they do, then they'll have to undo the damage done already.

The interviewer was pulling a clever psychological trick, which actually proved nothing.  By asking as if everyone should have heard which awful choice Trump made, a number of them didn't want to admit they hadn't.  They were all aware that it would be a bad one.  That was predictable as soon as Kennedy announced his retirement.

Naturally the interviewer left out of his video all those who first asked, "I haven't heard yet-- which asshole DID he pick?"


Now I am sure there were many when asked in the following video knew that Trump had not nominated anyone yet for the vacant S

I know you blame women for their own pay gap, and you blame black and brown people for the discrimination against them.  And income inequality?  I suppose that's the fault of the poor people, who just don't work hard enough to become corporate CEO's.

You must be awfully happy living in this perfect society in which no one is being treated unjustly by anyone else.


I was talking to a friend recently who buys into the regressive left bullshit; the SJW's bullshit, and he happened to mention

The picture expresses my overall feelings about the reprehensible subject better than most.

He represents an unprecedented danger to our democracy, more so, and in a different way than the progression of Republicans from Nixon, Reagan, and the Bushes.  Each of them were guilty of wrongful acts with lasting harm, but none of them so aggressively disregarded ethical norms, attacked Constitutional principles, or actively pushed racial, ethnic, and religious divisive prejudices as a political strategy.

We are, in a way, fortunate that his incompetence and impulsiveness have left him vulnerable to a thorough investigation.  Americans have long believed that our Constitutional system protects us from the kind of power abuses that have dismantled democracies  elsewhere, and mostly it has, but it also needs good people willing to stand up for it.
